Well, yes and no. We were surprised, but then again we weren't.
We have huge fabulous news!
On a beach in Florida!
There are no wedding pictures. And once I got over that, (read - got over how this is so not about me) what I realized is that there are two amazing wonderful people that God put together, and they made it official forever. And of course that's way more important than a wedding and pictures. Because to them it wasn't really about a wedding! It was about a marriage and two people who wanted to start their journey together without all the hullabaloo of a wedding. They just wanted to be together, forever. They just wanted to be married. Not a wedding. So that's just what they did. And I totally get that!
We are planning on having a celebration bash eventually. But there is no urgency for that either because they are so amazingly happy about being married and being together already. We are so excited for them, happy they are together, and don't think she could have found a more wonderful husband anywhere. Thank you, God! The Airman is a dreamboat of a man. He's smart, handsome, responsible and loves her so so so much. And the way she looks at him and they way she is with him, it very reciprocal. They are the perfect pair who are already mapping out their future and dreaming big, the way newlyweds are suppose to do!
|I took this quite a while ago. It'll suffice until I can convince them to pose for pics again.|
And this will NOT be a reminder that I am now old enough to have a married daughter. Because like I already said, this is not about me. (And because I might have a kicking baby tantrum if I focus on that too long.)
